The Humble Freedom Bundle Raises $6.43M for ACLU and Other Charities

The more we play Stardew Valley, the freer we all become.

Freedom and video games: They go together like barbeques and hamburgers. Gamers got appropriately riled up for the Humble Freedom Bundle, which ran last week and closed out yesterday with $6.43M raised for numerous charities.

"Thanks all for making this happen!" the official Humble Bundle Twitter account stated yesterday. The $6.43M, which doesn't include the $300,000 Humble Bundle is donating, goes to the ACLU, Doctors Without Borders, and the International Rescue Committee.
